Matthew King's Resume
I am a software engineer with more than a decade of professional experience and a proven track record. I have spent much of my career as a consultant and contractor, working with a group of companies across the mining industry and the vehicle safety / logistics field.
I have worked both as a solo contributor and as a member of a team - building web services, web UIs, desktop applications, databases, infrastructure, tooling, and open source libraries.

Professional experience

2015 - 2023 | Senior Software Engineer @ The Nimble Tech Co
  • Built and maintained several business-critical desktop applications that form the core of NTC's product suite.
  • Led a team that built a fleet management/tracking/analytics system that ingests hundreds of thousands of data points from IoT devices and provides business insights to fleet managers via a web portal.
  • Built a web portal to add SaaS features to NTC's suite of data management tools.
  • Built several bespoke applications (web UI, web API, desktop app, IoT integration) for clients.
  • Developed internal tools, scripts, infrastructure, and workflows to increase staff productivity.
2009 - 2015 | Software Engineer @ Expedio
  • Designed and implemented a suite of data management tools, allowing Expedio to break their reliance on third-party solutions. This suite of tools eventually became a saleable product that Expedio built their consulting business around.
  • Took over the OCRIS Mobile v3 project which was behind schedule and projected to remain undelivered for 18-24 months. Delivered it successfully within 6 months.
  • Developed internal tools, scripts, infrastructure, and workflows to increase the productivity of the geological consultants, allowing Expedio to handle more billable client work with fewer staff members.
2008 - 2009 | Freelance Software Developer
  • Designed and implemented a photo management, geotagging, and mapping application for a hardware vendor to bundle with their digital cameras.
  • Designed and implemented a bespoke static site generator for a design agency.
  • Ported an existing WinForms desktop application to Windows Mobile.
2006 - 2007 | Junior Software Developer @ St Arnaud Data Management
  • Created several internal tools to increase employee productivity (some of which are still in use as of 2020).
  • Built a number of features for the flagship data capture software.
Career highlights

  • Co-inventor of patent AU2012101663 relating to the innovative work I was doing in the field of vehicle motion detection.
  • Saved a customer hundreds of thousands of dollars by preventing a situation where they would have had to take their entire vehicle fleet off the road. This was accomplished by some clever reverse engineering of some third-party software - and led to my employer winning a large contract.
  • The Blank-it project - on which I was the lead engineer - won the innovation category of the Australian Road Safety Awards.
  • 1.85 million downloads of my open source projects on NuGet.
  • Answered a StackOverflow question posed by the world-famous Jon Skeet - an achievement that fewer than 50 programmers in the world (at time of writing) can lay claim to.
